KE Excellence Award, HKU Innovator Award and HKU Young Innovator Award 2022
The university-level KE Excellence Award was introduced in 2015-16 to recognise outstanding KE accomplishment that has made significant economic, social, environmental or cultural impacts to benefit the society.
Recognising innovations is equally important to spur sharing of innovations with the broader community. Introduced in 2020-21, the HKU Innovator Award and the HKU Young Innovator Award aim to recognise outstanding Faculty members whose innovations demonstrate exceptionally high potential impact (legacy or projected legacy) with transformative results to foster development.
The recipients for these awards this year are as follows:
KE Excellence Award 2022
Dr Guojun He, HKU Business School
“The Extraordinary Success of China’s ‘War on Pollution’”
HKU Innovator Award 2022
Professor Mingxin Huang, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering
HKU Yong Innovator Award 2022
Dr Shuofeng Yuan, Department of Microbiology, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine
The three Awards will be presented at the HKU Excellence Awards Presentation Ceremony in March 2023.
